St Albans is an historic city dating back to before Roman times. Despite being a modern and vibrant city, St Albans retains many historic buildings and attractions alongside the modern amenities. St Albans Cathedral is the principal landmark of the city and can be seen dominating the skyline from many miles away. The Verulamium Museum houses many artefacts from when St Albans was a Roman city. This walk takes in both these landmarks, along with other more modern features such as the clocktower. The walk also passes alongside the lake in Verulamium Park, an area rich in wildlife.

28/03/10 Richard and Tricia Daw. What a brilliant walk and what a delightful place St Albans is! If you don't go in the Roman museum do make time to follow the sign to the mosaic in the park - worth a quick visit. And we found the number of thriving pubs incredible - there was almost one every 100 yards!! We visited none I hasten to add but had afternoon tea in the cathedral. Thank you!

This is a fantastic walk - St Albans is a little gem of a place and wonderfully historic - well worth the time!
